Krista Erickson's Attack on Margie Gillis and Arts Funding on SUN TV

It might be a good idea to sit down for this one. Krista Erickson's blindside attack on Margie Gillis' funding from the "Canada Arts Council" [sic] may go down as an opening broadside against funding for the arts in Canada from the Fox News-funded extreme right wing media. Kudos go to Margie for the eloquence, dignity, and grace with which she defended herself and the arts community against Krista's ill-informed and vicious personal attacks.
